As told by Dhairya Sethi, the story and legacy of Bon Ton and Vansons is awe-inspiring for any entrepreneur. Started as a pen seller on the streets of Chandani Chowk Dhairya’s grandfather - Raj Pal Sethi - struggled hard to establish a successful business empire for the generations to come. He came to India from Pakistan in 1947 at the time of partition with nothing in hand and never looked back again. He was a visionary and had a clear idea of what would be basic necessities of a common man be, so after independence he started selling glasses and pens, eventually getting into selling shoes too. Raj Pal Sethi then went to Europe and across the globe to understand the various business ideas and also to score different products. The business is now handled by his son Rajiv Sethi and his grandson Dhairya Sethi. As a leading brand that sells optical solutions, Bon Ton would surprise you with its wide ranged collection in terms of price, quality and sheer looks. Gone are the clunky, thickglass spectacles that were such a familiar sight on such shelves, the new generation sunglasses are ultra-thin plastic, sleek and smart. Apart from the ubiquitous Ray-Ban, there are glasses from Emporio Armani, Georgio Armani, Calvin Klein, Christian Dior, Emanuel Ungaro, Karl Lagerfield, and, in an exclusive display, Cartier too! They have stores across Delhi including Connaught Place, Khan Market, Gurgaon and South Extension. The display is extremely simple with wooden shelves and glass racks to display the shades. What’s more important is the collection. The emphasis is less on the display and more on the product. The client legacy has been amazing; Bon Ton has a great relationship with it’s clients since ages because of their service, brand name, product quality and the experience Bon Ton comes with.
